Narratives we organize by( )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a collection of texts that explore the analogy between organizing and narrating, between action and text. The raw material of everyday organizational life consists of disconnected fragments, physical and verbal actions that do not make sense when reported with simple chronology. Narrating is organizing this raw and fragmented material with the help of such devices as plot and characters. Simultaneously, organizing makes narration possible, because it orders people, things and events in time and place. The collection, written by organization researchers from many different countrie
Casting the other : the production and maintenance of inequalities in work organizations by Barbara Czarniawska-Joerges( )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 1,462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Casting the Other shows clearly the paradoxical way in which many well-intended programmes of organizational change actually work against what they seek to achieve by establishing the very practices which they hope to address. This book provides examples of the way in which power is used in the maintenance of inequality at different levels of the organization from the strategic to the local. This results in questions about how research could contribute to this process and offers a challenge to conventional approaches to diversity and its management."--Jacket
A city reframed : managing Warsaw in the 1990s by Barbara Czarniawska-Joerges( )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 1,076 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Management of big cities is a relatively unresearched area, as compared to city planning and city governance. A study of Warsaw city management reveals the transformation process typically found in European countries in political and economic transition. In A City Reframed, Czarniawska conceptualises city management as an ""action-net"" under transformation, where three types of action are in focus: ""muddling through"", or coping with daily problems; ""reframing"", or changing the frame of interpretation of the worldin order to take successful action; and ""anchoring"", the testing

Global ideas : how ideas, objects and practices travel in a global economy by Barbara Czarniawska-Joerges( )

21 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Attempts to explain how it is possible that, although the same idea travels around the globe at a high speed, local realities are still very different. This book shows what is travelling; and how it moves between countries and disciplines. Its frame of reference consists of a combination of organization theory, institutionalism and sociology

Management education and humanities by Pasquale Gagliardi( )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Management Education and Humanities argues that management teachers and researchers seem to be increasingly dissatisfied with the way managers are usually educated in western countries. It claims that educational practices and methods would greatly benefit from reflection on the implicit assumptions and paradigms behind those practices, and debates the role that humanism and humanities might play in the formation of new managerial élites."--Publisher

19 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A tale of three cities : or the globalization of city management by Barbara Czarniawska-Joerges( Book )

23 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author examines the effects of globalization at the local level within our everyday lives. Rather than seeing the city as a conurbation, a location of economic activity, or in terms of governance and administration, she explores the city as an 'action net'
A theory of organizing by Barbara Czarniawska-Joerges( Book )

35 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in English and Swedish and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Barbara Czarniawska, renowned organization theorist, offers in A Theory of Organizing a processual view of organizing, and develops a theory based on multiple field studies and recent theoretical insights. The author demonstrates that the global economy and its ally, information technology, have paved the way for organizing across corporate and national borders. Mergers and acquisitions are now mundane events, and markets have become more virtual than ever, even as ideas that travel across the world, and are translated into local practices." "This book will challenge and stimulate organizational theoreticians and organizational practitioners. It will also prove lively reading for academics from a range of backgrounds, including sociology, business administration, and the political sciences"--Résumé de l'éditeur
Narrating the organization : dramas of institutional identity by Barbara Czarniawska-Joerges( Book )

15 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using a narrative approach unique to organizational studies, Czarniawska employs literary devices to uncover the hidden workings of organizations. She shows how the interpretive description of organizational worlds works as a distinct genre of social analysis, and her investigations ultimately disclose the paradoxical nature of organizational life: we follow routine in order to change, and decentralize in order to control. By confronting such paradoxes, we bring crisis to existing institutions and enable them to change
Overwhelmed by overflows? : how people and organizations create and manage excess by Barbara Czarniawska-Joerges( )

10 editions published in 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This transdisciplinary volume investigates the ways in which people and organisations deal with the overflow of information, goods or choices. It explores two main themes: the emergence of overflows and the management of overflows, in the sense of either controlling or coping with them. Individual chapters show the management of overflows taking place in various social settings, periods and political contexts. This includes attempts by states to manage future consumption overflow in post-war Easter European, contemporary economies of sharing, managing overflow in health care administration, overflow problems in mass travel and migration, overflow in digital services and the overflow that scholars face in dealing with an abundance of publications
Good novels, better management : reading organizational realities by Barbara Czarniawska-Joerges( Book )

30 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The collection of essays in Good Novels, Better Management demonstrates how novels are not only comparable, but often superior to the case histories used in business education. As many novelists have had personal experience of working in organizations, their work combines subjective insight with practical understanding and skill." "Fiction overcomes the drawbacks of organizational theory and economics: it combines the subjective and the objective, the fate of individuals with that of institutions, and the micro events with the macro systems." "Many parts of Europe are now in danger of splitting into societies that draw energy from dark sources obscured by a century of rationalist ideology. It is on this subject that the novels studied in this book, by authors as diverse as Zola, Conrad, Musil and Strindberg, make their greatest contribution. They describe the provenance and impact of modernity." "The essays published in this volume relate novels to economics, business administration and public management. They range across different cultures and historical periods, focusing mainly on the realist novel. At the same time, they argue that many kinds of fictional literature are of help in understanding the complexity of today's organizations."--Jacket
Cyberfactories : how news agencies produce news by Barbara Czarniawska-Joerges( Book )

16 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Have you ever wondered how organizations decide which news is important? This insightful book portrays in detail everyday work in three news agencies: Swedish TT, Italian ANSA and the worldwide Reuters. This unique study is about organizing rather than journalism, revealing two accelerating phenomena: cybernization (machines play a more and more central role in news production) and cyborgization (people rely more and more on machines). Barbara Czarniawska reveals that technological developments lead to many unexpected consequences and complications. Cyberfactories will prove essential to researchers interested in contemporary forms of organizing, studies of technology, and media. It will also appeal to a lay reader interested in how news is produced
